Who doesn’t love manicure? As women, we all love to spoil ourselves. And manicure is the best and easiest way to do this. But, have your ever heard from your beauty experts that you have super hard cuticles? If this is the case, just try this natural homemade cuticle balm cream.
Your cuticles will be softer. And your manicure will no longer be painful.
Actually, cuticle is the upper part of our skin. But generally, it is used to describe the dead skin cells around our nails. While having a manicure, these dead skin cells are removed. But, if you have hard and rough cuticles, it can be painful. And the manicure can be hard to make.
Even though beauty saloons apply moisturiser before the process, you can do more than this. Using regular cuticle balm cream will make your hands softer.
Also, your dead skins will look lees horrible. So, if you skip your manicure appointment, you will not feel that bad.
As in all beauty products, I made my own DIY homemade cuticle balm cream. After using for 2 or 3 weeks, the results are amazing. So, I want to share my own recipe with you.
